The black churn of the sea fused my green heart.
I was born to a fate of terrible longings
and cells that attack each other
When my lover chokes me, sometimes,
I vanish and float in black water somewhere else
another place and time
in a massive emptiness.
Sometimes I swim farther, I think, then I could in the moment I am gone.
Only a moment.
Not even a breath
Later, his large slender hands carry me back
to life and bed
I could drown you
In the enormity of my love for you
Love does so much more than frighten me
I am alive and full of colour,
dripping honey and sea-water.
He talks to me in the dark.
Our voices hold secrets,
the fine ropes of long words alive between us
love hoists me into the air like a shark on a hook
something most beautiful
I am Wild-eyed but calm,
salted and oiled, ready to be eaten
This is what softness looks like
Rope growing slack as two people step closer
Connected and at ease
This is what hardness looks like
One person tied by another
I am a gem on Pain’s cheek,
I kisses his palms, warm from spanking me
Moving through white rumpled bedsheets
he cuts me with a jagged glass of pain and small knife
marks blaze scarlet
and turn to purple fog
